A regional government official informed The NP News that the incident took place on 19 March around 12 pm in Htanlonetat Village, Tada-U Township, Mandalay Region.

Ko Chit Zaw Oo, a 26-year-old basic education high school teacher serving in Htanlonetat Village, was tragically murdered by two unidentified terrorists while cycling along the village road.

"Two armed attackers shot the teacher at close range from the back, killing him instantly. They then proceeded to the victim's home and shot his father as well. This is an act of unspeakable brutality by these terrorists," a Mandalay Region government official said.

As a consequence of the terrorist attack carried out by two gunmen, schoolteacher Ko Chit Zaw Oo sustained the head split open from head to his chin, along with a gunshot wound to his knee, ultimately resulting in his immediate death at the scene.
